As the strange situation surrounding Percy Harvin continues to unfold, Vikings coach Leslie Frazier says his unhappy receiver will be on the practice field today.
Although Harvin was absent from Wednesday afternoon’s minicamp practice, Frazier said on KFAN that Harvin is at the team’s facility this morning and will be with the Vikings as they conclude their minicamp on Thursday.
Harvin said he’s unhappy on Tuesday but still hasn’t explained why he’s unhappy, other than to confirm that it’s not about his contract. Harvin has requested a trade and hinted that he might not show up to training camp, but the fact that he will show up today could be an indication that his unhappiness is starting to ease.
The Vikings’ viewpoint is that Harvin is either going to learn to be happy in Minnesota or he’s going to remain unhappy in Minnesota: The Vikings say they won’t trade Harvin, who despite his occasional personal problems and occasional injury problems remains one of their most talented offensive playmakers.
